Three staff members from the Centre for Free Radical Research have travelled to Canada to present at two conferences this month.
Professor Christine Winterbourn presented at the Canadian Oxidative Stress Consortium (COSC) in Edmonton, Canada which ran from 30 May until 1 June.
Her talk was about neutrophils, hypochlorous acid, and the battle against bacterial infection.
Meanwhile Drs Louisa Forbes and Heather Parker presented posters at the Neutrophil 2018 International Symposium from 2-5 June in Quebec, Canada.
Dr Forbes’ poster focused on the detection of hypochlorous acid in neutrophil phagosomes with the probe R19S.
Dr Parker presented two posters. The first on the timing of reactive oxygen soecies involvement in formation of neutrophil extracellular traps. Her second was about the resistance of mycobacterium smegmatis to oxygen-dependent killing by neutrophils.
